HISTORY
In 2927, 5 reconnaissance and light bombers of the Fokker CVE type were purchased from Koninklijke Nederlandske Vliegtuigen Fabriek, with the right to license production. On 11 May, Lieutenant Fering did a test flight where he first flew a couple of laps over Lillestrøm, Norway. It is said that the slim fighter attracted a lot of attention, especially because of the “staggering speed it achieved” as people have said (230km/h). The planes were in both short-wing (CVD) and long-wing (CVE) versions, and they were so well liked that after a while an agreement was signed for license production at Kjeller flyfabrikk. In February 1828, 5 planes were under construction. One of the purchased aircraft was disassembled, so that the factory personnel had something to look for. It was a robust aircraft with a body welded together from steel tubes, which was completely new at the time, while the wings were made of wood as before, and both the fuselage and wings were covered with canvas. The plane was a biplane. The production of Fokker at Kjeller Flyfabrikk ended in 1939, after 42 aircraft had been built. At the outbreak of war (the German invasion) in 1940, approx. 40 Fokker scout and fighter aircraft, CVD and CVE in service

In 1930 the flyvemaskin factory began producing the short-winged CVD instead of the CVE. this was a two-seat fighter and close reconnaissance fighter. In terms of construction, the CVD and CVE were similar, but the CVD had a 3m shorter overwing than the CVE. in addition, the design of the struts between the wings was different. the first series of 8 føys were delivered in 1931, and these gliders had the same Bristol Jupiter engine as the CVE. the next four series of a total of 19 machines were equipped with stronger Armstrong Siddeley Phanter engines which were built under license in Norway and supplied by Marinens Minevæsen in Horten

A Norwegian CVD is on display at the Norwegian Aviation Museum in Bodø. this aircraft belonged to the Flying School at Kjeller Airport and was evacuated to Sweden on 15 April 1940. Here it was used civilly until it was given back to Norway as a gift in 1947

Live ammunition in 7.92x61 MG heavy from Raufoss had cartridge cases and caps in brass. Production took place from 1937 to 1944 with steel jacketed projectiles of 14.2 grams.

For firing tests in 1936, cartridges with two stars and an R at 12 o’clock were tested. Ammunition from 1943 and 1944 has copper-plated projectiles with a steel jacket. A small number of cartridges loaded by Finower Industrie GmbH in Germany with German pattern markings have been observed. These are dated 1943 with factory code cg. The German designation for this caliber is “7.9 mm Patr s.S 294/2 (n) norw tung” or “Patrone M/37”.

The cartridges were normally packed in cloth bands of 220 cartridges. These were regular 250 tapes with the last 30 cartridge pockets cut away. The ammunition was delivered in wooden boxes with 9 cardboard boxes, each containing one cloth band. The label on the wooden box was white. The cardboard boxes had an arrow on the lid which should point towards the weapon when you put the box in the ammunition box. This meant that the belt remained with the projectiles in the correct direction. These belts were designated “Sharp ammunition, heavy, unmixed”. If the belts contained tracer cartridges, the designation was “Sharp ammunition, heavy, mixed”.

The ammunition was produced until 1944. After this, it was reloaded in old empty casings to an unknown extent.
